	I'm not sure you're right -- the JAASTomcatRealm should be using 
RealmPrincipals, which are not currently returned.  I need to talk this 
over with Alan:

	Last time we talked you wanted to return everything except the 
RealmPrincipals...  why the change of heart?

	What if we change the JaasLoginCoordinator to load the
RealmPrincipals if it is used within the same JVM as the server, but not
if it connects over the network?  That may be the best balance of "give
other server components what they neeed" and "don't expose Geronimo
security internals to clients".
